A building collapsed in Spain and people are trapped

A three-story building collapsed this Wednesday in the Castellón town of Peñíscola, Spain, and there are at least two people trapped, as reported by sources from the Castellón Provincial Fire Brigade and the Generalitat Emergency Consortium.

The accident, whose causes are unknown at the moment, occurred late this Wednesday afternoon, in a building with about 20 apartments, located in the Font Nova urbanization.

The emergency services have managed to get a person who was trapped alive, so there are two people trapped at the moment; one of them is conscious and has been able to communicate with the rescue operation.

“It is a block of terraced houses with three floors and it seems that about six houses per floor have fallen. It has been a roar, they have gone down and some of them have had the fortune to be saved because if not, from what it looks like how spectacular the demolition has been, we would have had to regret probably more victims, “the mayor of Peñíscola, Andrés Martínez, explained to Cadena SER.

Five fire crews were transferred to the site, as well as personnel from the rescue and rescue units, the canine unit and the machinery and logistics unit.

Firefighters continue to work to secure the structure of the building in order to reach the trapped person who has been located, since there is a risk of collapse of the facilities.
